GPCP AUCTION PIECE: TRY AGAIN JAMES
Okay, so the first painting idea I had (the take off on the Obama "Hope" image) was a stupid idea so I jettisoned that idea in favor of this one--which I kind of love. This was a sketch that I just sort of blew up on the canvas and then pretty much just loosely roughed out with acrylics. Once I had all the colors blocked in, I went back in with pastels and then added accents. Total working time, about 4-ish hours (including the time for making coffee, talking on the phone and pulling Daily Show and Colbert up on Hulu).
